On Tuesday evening, 10th January, Poole Council’s Cabinet is being asked to support a new set of parking charges. This is on top of the charges being introduced at Upton Country Park and others, such as Whitecliff and Hamworthy. For Broadstone car parks the charge for the first hour increases from 40p to £1.00 a rise of 150%. The details are set out below:
- Up to 1hr from 40p to £1; up to 2hrs from 80p to £1.50; up to 3hrs from £1.30 to £3.50; up to 4hrs from £1.80 to £3.50; up to 6hrs from £2.70 to £5.00. etc.
- The cost of an annual permit is set to increase from £225 to £500, while the quarterly permit increases from £70 to £150 (£600 for the year)!
If Cabinet vote in favour on Tuesday evening then these new charges will be introduced on March 1st.
I believe these huge increases are totally unjustifiable and unacceptable. If you agree please email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
and also share this note with all your friends in and around Broadstone, Merley, Canford Heath, Bearwood and Corfe Mullen. I will make sure your views are made known to the Council.
